Seedles started as a sidewalk stroll, evolved into a home science lab experiment, and started blooming as a Kickstarter project in April of 2014. We successfully raised over $11,000 and decided to roll out a website and product line because we had hundreds of people begging us for more after the campaign ended.
Seedles are rainbow bright balls of seed, compost, and clay. We’ve done the heavy lifting by designing Seedles to practically grow themselves. They add fun and vibrant colors to your neighborhood while benefitting local pollinators. All you have to do is throw them and grow them.
We aim to inspire kids to grow one billion wildflowers to bring back the bees and ensure a sustainable food system for their future.
